Walking through the Reading Terminal can be overwhelming, and you’ll probably find at least 20 different things sitting on display that you’ll immediately want to order. But at Hershel’s, once you see the huge slabs of corned beef and pastrami behind the counter, there’s no way you’re walking away without a sandwich. That’s a good thing, though, because the pastrami, egg, and cheese is the best thing on the menu. The meat is tender, the eggs are gooey, and the toasty bread holds everything together nicely if you’re taking it on the go.
